My mortgage broker has asked me for my Treharris law firm’s panel reference for the Lloyds conveyancing panel. What is the best way to discover this. I have contacted my local Treharris branch but they don't know it.
You are best placed to get this information from your Treharris lawyer . Most Treharris conveyancing firms will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.
Are all Treharris Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing list of approved solicitors?
A selection of lenders now use the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to join their approved list of firms.
We had appointed conveyancing lawyers located in Treharris on the Leeds Building Society solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me an additional fee for handling the Leeds Building Society mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Leeds Building Society?
Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner is entitled to charge a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Leeds Building Society but by your Treharris conveyancing practitioner. Some firms on the Leeds Building Society panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some practices incorporate it on their overall fee.
Having digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Treharris solicitor - who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
Kent Reliance will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Kent Reliance will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Treharris surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Treharris is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Treharris are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Treharris you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Treharris may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
